IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: Ebola studies highlight long-delayed momentum in face of unprecedented obstacles
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer at “Science Speaks,” highlights a Journal of Infectious Diseases special supplement marking 50 years since the discovery of the Marburg virus, and how advances against that virus, as well as Ebola, “have gathered force in the last half decade.” Barton notes the issue “includes coverage of advances in epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, including a look at how research toward effective treatment can, and must, continue even in the midst of responses” (11/27).
